But the Internet pays attention when the brand-influencer combo is particularly unexpected.
Yesterday, May 7, from noon-7 p.m., comedian Rob Delaney took over the @MLB Twitter account. Let’s just say there were some curveballs.
Alex Mizrahi, part-time community manager at Brooklyn cocktail bar Tooker Alley and recent freelance producer of the Shorty Awards, found a little something extra to occupy him in his spare time.
He created @HuffPoSpoilers, a hilarious Twitter account that “give[s] in to @HuffingtonPost click-bait so you don’t have to.”
The next chapter in the story of the Twitter and Viacom partnership is a five-day comedy festival co-presented with Comedy Central.
According to the New York Times, the Twitter comedy festival will be played out in tweets and Vines.
The festival, using the hashtag “ComedyFest,” will debut April 29. Over five days, comedians – both amateur and professional – will tweet jokes and post Vines. For example, comedian Steve Agee will host a “Vine Dining” party of six-second video stories.
When creating a Twitter profile, there are enough bio do’s and don’ts to make your head spin. It’s amazing, really – especially considering how limited the space is. But the brevity of it is what makes it SO important to get right. Every word will stand out – so will every typo.
It’s kind of nerve-wracking to think about it that way, hmm?
Before you fret over word choice though, we have some (more) helpful info to cram in your overburdened mind – and this stuff is kind of fun. We’re going to show you some popular Twitter profile photo options, which you can copy, ignore, relate to or laugh at. It’s Friday after all, you deserve a little mindcation (vacation for your mind. Yes, some words should not be combined.)
